Adventures of a Darvish is a collection based on the philosophy of Sufis and Dervishes of Iran, surrounding the ephemerality of our life. They affirm their beliefs and philosophy through their lifestyle and appearance. Their clothes are mostly threadbare and shredded and they don’t feel dishonor or shame about it. Dervishes don’t have anything to hide, so they live an Intentional transparent life. They show all of their Imperfections and privations of their life to others without any fear, as God is the only one who can judge us. No matter where they live as long as they have the earth to stay on it and the sky to shelter under it.
